Bio and Links
Bio Photo Haven't been on FAG much the past 16 months - working on and just finished my MBA and also a graduate certificate. Those who have taken accelerated classes, work full time, and have a family with a 7 year old know how crazy it gets. I'm ramping back up and going through all the emails and FAG notifications/messages I have received and will address each of your queries and requests as quickly as I can with the individual attention you rightly deserve. Thank you very much to those who expressed and emailed me with their understanding and words of encouragement.


**Rotated Photos: Some of the pictures I have been posting are rotated to the left. FAG is scaling them to the left when uploaded. When you click on the picture to full window, the photo will be in the correct rotation. I will go back and trying reducing the size of the picture and uploading again as time permits (I will have to play around with one to find the right file size).

I am happy to take photo requests and make changes to memorials, However, please note that I work full time and I'm the mother of an active 8 year old and wife to an amazing husband.

DO NOT Leave a message, BRENDA ARNETT DARBYSHIRE, if you will not provide contact information to have a dialog why you believe a change should be made. If you wish to discuss privately - email me.

Some of my, and my husband's, family names being researched are listed in my virtual cemeteries.

I make regular visits to Andersonville National Cemetery to visit with my mom and brother and to put flowers on their graves. When I make these trips I take photos for others. I try to pop in and look in the cemetery database located in the lobby. If you would like to look for information in that database without having to visit the cemetery - it was made public by the family of Jack Lundquist who developed it. When he passed away in 2009 his family put it on line at:

I have a passion for capturing and sharing information found in cemeteries. When I stand and look about I see the headstones and markers and so much more. They are markers of a life that once was. As I stand there quietly I listen, to the whispers on the wind that say "remember me."

You need to delete the photo for this memorial, it is the wrong photo!

Governor Thomas Hinckley
Thank you for your work; however this memorial is a duplicate of #6798664. Your birth and death dates don't match,but you have them both as Governor of the Plymouth Colony. See also Wikipedia the has baptism date and death.

RE: Olga Gunderson Blish
Oh, I can so feel for you, I did mine between 2008-2010. So much work along with full-time job and young kids. It was very fulfilling when I completed it though.

RE: Olga Gunderson Blish
So we somehow need to remedy this. I was at Bayside today and took a photo of Olga Gunderson Blish Haberlie's headstone. She is buried next to her sister Jordis Gunderson Braun. I am going to make a listing for Olga at Bayside and if you could delete her parents of Gunder and Dorthea Gunderson I think we would have everything straight.

Verna & Stella Seeley
Hello Terry, I posted pics for Verna & Stella Seeley. While looking around for the other daughter, Cordia, I found memorials for them with the spelling Seely. Those memorials were added in 2011. I think Find A Grave etiquette says the older memorial stays, but that is between you and the Lloyd's who added the other memorials. Just thought I would give you a heads up. Thanks

Could you delete the site you created for Linnie as there is another site where cemetery records have her in Aultorest Memorial Park in Ogden, Ut. Thank you,

Olga Gunderson Blish
Hi Terry,

Regarding Olga Gunderson Blish #73664435, I do not believe this is the daughter of Gunder and Dorthea Gunderson. As you can see, her age is the same as her mother. There is another Olga Haavarda Gungerson DeGodt Blish Haberlie, but she was born in 1901 and was divorced from Walter Blish before 1940, then married Herman Haberlie around 1948.

RE: Frank Shipman
All of the Nuckolls County cemeteries are on Find A Grave so you might query them for the obits. If they aren't on the memorial let me know and I will scan them when I go to the newspaper office which is only 3 blocks from our home.
